welcome back Betway Bets of the day! All bets are for one unit unless otherwise stated.
Evander Kane returned to the ice on Tuesday after a long-awaited return. After a wrist injury kept him out of the lineup for more than two months, Kane provided an offensive boost for the Edmonton Oilers. In his first game, Kane put up seven shots on goal and did so in just seventeen minutes of ice time.
With Kane showing up again, he can put up a high shot total per game, and with him skating alongside Connor McDavid, his shot opportunities will continue. Kane will also get some looks on the league’s top power play unit, increasing his chances of earning a set shot prop tonight.
Our second bet of the day Brad Marchand o2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -120.
Marchand is hitting 2.5 shots in two of his last three games. During that three-game span, Marchand is averaging 3.67 shots on goal per game. Entering tonight’s contest against the New York Rangers, Marchand had collected 97 shots in 36 games played. Marchand is averaging 2.7 shots on goal per outing this season, set prop lines make that achievable.
I personally like this game tonight, as the Bruins have the best scoring offense in the NHL (170 goals). As Boston continues to pepper opposing goaltenders, Marchand has been a big part of that since staying healthy. Marchand is projected to skate on the Bruins’ first forward line and power play unit tonight.
